How is this container delivered?

Tilt Tray

Tilt tray delivers a container off the back of the truck. Similar to a tow truck, the tray is mechanically lowered at an angle, and the container is slid off, with the truck moving forward at slow speed. This is the most common delivery method used for containers. Tilt trays are not suitable for sites with overhead power lines as the container height increases significantly when tilted.

Side Loader

Side loaders are used to transport our 20 foot and 40 foot shipping containers. This is the best delivery method for containers at sites that have limited space either in front or behind the area where the container is to be positioned. The container is unloaded between the two outrigger feet of the side loader, approximately half a metre from the side of the truck.

Hiab Crane

Hiab cranes lift containers from a mechanism located behind the truck’s cabin. This is used when there is limited space for a side loader or tilt tray. Using a crane means the container is easily positioned at an angle or up on a raised area. It can also be used to place containers over a fence or other obstacles.

Was able to get the conatiner I wanted at a price that was far better than it's competition. Working with Victoria Evans from Pelican was great and the delivery company they helped me find was spot on. If I need another container, I know exactly where I will go, right back to Pelican!

Pelican Containers are an amazing company to work with! From the sales rep to the delivery driver, they all worked with a very high level of integrity. This America based business answered the phone when we called, they checked up and followed through with all our requests. We had daily communication with the sales rep during the purchase process. When the driver was on his way with our delivery, and he knew that he was running behind, he called to let us know a more exact time he would arrive. He was easy to work with and was not in a hurry to off load the containers. He was thorough with the placement of the containers, making sure that they were where we wanted them. We will do business with this company again!
